[ applause ] senator-elect macy hirano, only the second woman of color to serve in the senate. that's pretty exciting and unfortunately we won't have kathy hochul and betty sutton in this next congress, but the future is soon and coming upon us and we know they will be making a great public contribution. so here we are in the past week since the election, we're still finishing up some of our campaigns, we're very proud of the success as i said yesterday and as you see here today. why is it important for us to make this statement of the strength of women in the congress of the united states? of the house democratic women? because this is where the hopes and dreams o
getting things done and providing a model of how they can transition. >> on the map right now california is reading blue in terms of the gubernatorial leading, but california, for instance, has had a whole series of republican governors. we have pennsylvania. we have new jersey, as you just mentioned. are all of these republican governors successful for very different reasons? >>. >> there's a whole swath of policy interests. and another thing that you can look at with the republican gubernatorial is diversity. you have hispanic governors in nevada. they won election of 2010. susanna martinez who got rave reviews for the convention speech at the the republican national convention. you see the republican wing in congress being very, very white. a lot of males dominating the caucus. on the governor's side you have a lot of hispanic and indiana-american governor es showing the way. >> you make the point that four of the five women serving as governors in 2013 are republicans. you look at large majorities of african-americans. latino and asian americans voting democratic, the question may be
to the whole question of whether states must grant same sex marriage. that's the big california case, the prop 108 case and less certain the court will take that case, i think. those are the two biggies that we'll watch. we may or may not find out on friday whether they will take them. we'll find out friday or the following monday. >> there is also some late breaking news in just the past hour. immediate challenges after the president's health care law became law. what's this latest announcement about? >> this is one of the first challenges to the law actually filed before the supreme court rule. this was brought by liberty university, a christian college in virginia that claims the employer mandate, the individual mandate violate religious freedom. what the supreme court basically said is we're not going to address the merits of the case. we're not saying whether you're right or wrong. we're simply saying the off ramp that the federal appeals court put the case on was the wrong one. try again. it gives liberty university a chance to go back to the trial court and start all over again. the oba
the mexican mafia is operating in northern california. are there serious indications that they are and what are the chances we'll see more drug violence here in the u.s.? >> no, i don't think that there are of-that the mexican mafia is this a huge way involved in drug distribution at a local level inside the united states. i think one thing to keep in mind, the general talks about adolescent drug use numbers, but the numbers for overall drug use in particular for overall chronic drug use are down pretty dramatically over the last decade and a half. if you look at the numbers for cocaine, for example, according to the national household survey, we have half the number of chronic cocaine users that we did just six years ago. that's astonishing. so i think in the long run, what we're talking about is a market for drugs in the united states, particularly hard drugs, that is diminishing. and i think what you will see and that what we've already seen in the long arc since the crack epidemic is a decline in the violence that accompanies that. now, south of the border is a little bit of a different
